“Held”

    Enigmatic producer Holy Other will be releasing his debut LP Held next month. The album’s title track, streaming below, is a gorgeous, angsty sprawl of disembodied syllables, guttural simpers and slow, punctuated beats. Taking on both a scale and a sparseness not found on the With U EP, “Held” indicates a promising evolution for the UK artist. 

    Held will be released August 28 via Tri Angle Records. Holy Other will be touring the United States with Amon Tobin this fall. Catch him at any one of the following dates:
